Al Fresco Feast – Try This Fresh, Simple Sandwich at Your Next Get-Together

We love to dine al fresco (that means outside), because everything always tastes better when you’re enjoying fresh air. Try this veggie-stuffed grilled cheese sandwich at your next outdoor get-together! Make it on the grill for a smokey, rich flavor!

Dining al fresco is when you eat your meal outside. Enjoying the fresh air and sunshine (or under the stars!) always makes food taste way better than when you eat it inside! This simple grilled cheese sandwich is the perfect light food for any outdoor party, or get-together. Melted provolone cheese, bell peppers, onion, and spinach come together in this mouth-watering grilled cheese sandwich. Serve it with a nice, light salad with balsamic vinegar dressing to complete the meal.

  2. Spread butter on one side of every slice of bread.
  3. Place 4 slices of bread (butter side down) on a large skillet (or over the grill) over medium heat.

  4. Flip the sandwiches over and grill for 2 minutes more or until bread is golden. Remove and serve.
